Cortitrol is a supplement made by Pharmanex. Its primary use is in stress management. Cortitrol targets cortisol and aims to balance it. Cortisol is the “fight-or-flight” hormone. It is manufactured in the adrenal glands in response to emergency situations.

L-Theanine Extract – 66.7mg
Phytosterol Ester – 50mg
Phosphatidylserine – 8.3mg
Cortitrol is clinically proven to help balance cortisol levels as proven in studies done in the University of Connecticut sponsored by Pharmanex.
Cortitrol is an excellent product when it comes to managing stress. The magnolia bark and l-theanine extract really helps calm you down. The product also lets you feel more refreshed even with only a few hours of sleep. What I have experienced with the product is that even with minimal sleeping hours I feel recharged as if I took an entire eight hours.
This product is ideal for today’s hectic lifestyle. This product is also perfect for people on a night shift.
The product has a mild aftertaste as it is after all produced from different plant extracts. This is however a small price to pay for a good night’s sleep. It is after all the quality of sleep that is important not only the quantity.
The benefit I have gotten from the product is increased productivity. Since I feel relaxed and not haggard or stressed, I am able to do work faster and more efficiently. I have also seen an improvement in my mental performance which has in the past been hampered by feeling sleepy or groggy.
